To be honest, I think that jacket is way too short for you. Taking in the waist will, IMO, just end up accentuating your hips more, giving you a more hour glass shape. If you can, I'd recommend returning it and starting over.

+1. He speaks the truth. Also, both those shirt collars are simply too small and look out of proportion with everything else. Try a higher collar band and definitely more spread with longer points.

I am looking to pick a summer sportscoat. I already have a navy hopsack, a blue tropical wool (part of a Havana suit), a navy cotton pique and a navy linen (this last one fits terribly). This will be worn in the office (I am a physician so my work environment is not strict at all) with light gray, mid gray, tan, olive , off white and navy trousers. Which of the below would work better color-wise with the things I mentioned? I am afraid the brown one will clash with my mid gray trousers (I wear mid gray pants 2-3 days per week). The lighter colored one will be worn in a northern lights scheme most of the times, but I don't plan to wear this SC more than 2-3 times per month, and it's a classic summer color. Thoughts?

The bottom one.

how do people feel about Brogue Loafers? I feel like this isn't quite traditional and I'm not familiar with whether this is a fashion item or perfectly fine as classic wear.

 

CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 90

Specifically I'm getting my first pair of loafer and it's coming down between these two.

 

I prefer the colour of the second one, they're both Herrings with the exact same specifications except for the last

Those tan ones have awesome detail on the toe. They're my pick

They seem an uncomfortable mix of styles for me but if you like them go for them.

 

It would be very dull if we all liked the same things.

@VirgilVerne I would get the top ones especially since this would be your first loafer. The bottom pair is too wonky for my taste.

I really like longwing blucher shoes and I stumbled on these meermin longwing:
1.

2.

https://www.meermin.es/articulo.php?idArt=4635#

I would like to know: are longwing versatile enough to be worn with casual clothes like jeans and chinos but also with tailored clothes like flannell trousers, odd jackets?
What would be the most versatile colour between the two. I honestly like the dark brown better.
Also is there a better option instead of longwings for bridging the gap between "formal" and casual wear? I already own a pair of penny loafers, a pair of suede chukka and other casual shoes like sneakers, boat shoes,etc..

Both of those are quite versatile though I would give the darker one the edge.

 

As regards bridging formal and casual wear no, not really. Brogueing is inherently less formal than a clean edge/seam but that does not necessarily make them casual - just a bit more countrified or rustic if you will.

 

Maybe look towards a semi-brogue adelaide; I find those to be quite versatile and about as formal as a shoe with brogueing can be however, I don't see anything wrong with your choices

An open-laced plain toe or cap toe might be good.

ok, I'm looking for shoes I could wear with jeans and chinos but also with odd jackets, flannel trousers, something as versatile as my suede chukka which I wear with basically everything ( other than suits). I thought longwings could be similar. I see people wearing longwing with jeans ( http://images.thesartorialist.com/thumbnails/2011/12/121810AldenDetail_9215Web12.jpg and other examples ), doesn't mean it's correct, but still.

Yes, I understood. Both shoes you have picked will work fine but I think the darker of the two would work better (as per your link).

 

You asked for suggestions of other styles will similar versatility and I find semi-brogue adelaides to be slightly smarter than the longwing bluchers you posted so would go better with suits whilst still being at home with jeans.

 

To be fair most shoes will go with the outfits you describe so the world is your oyster.

Good afternoon, can black wingtips be worn with this? Thank you.[IMG]

ok sorry I believe I misunderstood your post, with
"As regards bridging formal and casual wear no, not really. Brogueing is inherently less formal than a clean edge/seam but that does not necessarily make them casual - just a bit more countrified or rustic if you will."
I thought you were saying the longwings I posted were more casual than let's say a balmoral but still not casual enough to be worn with jeans. Ok I will go with the darker brown, as I said I like it more
